Owain Doull was pleased with his Opening Weekend performance at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad after recording his best Classics finish to date.
“I didn’t do Opening Weekend last year because I had my appendicitis and had come back from Australia, so it was a totally different way for me to start the year."
It is reassuring and it’s a good place to be able to build from.
“I started at E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem and I just took an absolute kicking! I barely finished any of them so to be in the race this time feels good.
